(Cedar Rapids, Iowa) -- GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation announced today that it launched PathShareSM, a suite of consulting services designed to add value to its customer base. The PathShare HR Services module is being deployed with several equipment Dealers who wish to improve employee selection and retention rates. PathShare HR Services will also complement sales training programs already offered to the GreatAmerica equipment Dealer base. Additional PathShare marketing and business-related services will follow.
GreatAmerica customers showed a clear demand for these services, especially among small and medium-sized office equipment and data/communications Dealers. Among the biggest challenges for these businesses was finding, hiring and developing top performers for their organizations.
“The ability to attract and keep top performing employees is paramount to the success of every organization,” said David Pohlman, GreatAmerica Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer. “We have dedicated personnel with hiring and training expertise to offer human resources consulting. This is one more way we can help our customers be more successful in the markets they serve.”
PathShare HR Services include webinars, seminars, assessment tools, and one-on-one consulting. Webinar topics are based on feedback from GreatAmerica customers and cover the components of a successful human resources program such as background and ability verification, interviewing techniques, desired leadership attributes, and human resources law.
“GreatAmerica understands that each business has unique human resources needs and is dedicated to providing a tailored solution based on those needs,” said Sally Brause, Director, Human Resources Consulting.
The Company was originally incorporated in Michigan in 1990 and renamed itself GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation when it moved to its headquarters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 1992. GreatAmerica is a national commercial equipment finance company dedicated to helping manufacturers, vendors, and dealers be more successful and keep their customers for a lifetime. GreatAmerica provides financing and consulting services in all fifty states and some U.S. Territories. GreatAmerica has a staff of over 300 employees with offices in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, and Missouri.
